Sjogren’s Syndrome in Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

American Spirit, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I took this picture in Jan. 2009 from our Grand Canyon Railroad train as we were pulling back into the station at William, AZ. This car was setting in the yard at the station and I loved the name.
